In Archery, India’s top-ranked women archer Deepika Kumari has bagged a silver medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Test Event. Deepika Kumari who was ranked fourth in the qualification round has missed gold medal to Korea’s An San in straight sets. San clinched the gold medal 6-0.

A double gold medallist at the recently-concluded fourth stage of the World Cup in Berlin, San took the first set narrowly when she piped the Indian by one point.

The Indian women’s team are yet to qualify for the next year’s Olympics but Deepika said the exposure will help.

The Korean then won the second set 29-25, before three perfect 10s won her the gold. This was the first individual final in an international tournament since she won a gold medal at the third stage of the world cup in Kolkata in June last year.
